Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with Children

All BPC accredited trainings consist of academic teaching, clinical work and personal psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Find out more about the training components on our page about how we accredit trainings.

Once qualified, those who have undertaken a training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and hold membership with the relevant Member Institution, will be eligible to register with the BPC as a child psychodynamic psychotherapist.

Child psychodynamic psychotherapists are trained to work with children and young people, and in some cases families. The work is about making conscious the unconscious and uses the patient-therapist relationship as the focus. There may be more of an emphasis on everyday life and outside experiences.

See below psychodynamic psychotherapy trainings that are currently accredited by us, with links to their website to find out more about the training content, structure, fees, eligibility requirements and the application process.
